12 Days of Kid's Christmas Crafts #7

Santa Face

Small paper plate
Flesh-tone craft paint
Red craft foam
Cotton balls
2 googly eyes
1 pink pom-pom
Red marker

Turn the paper plate upside down and paint it with a flesh tone of your choice. Set the plate aside to dry.

Cut a hat shape out of red craft foam and glue a cotton ball to the tip of the hat and then glue a line of cotton balls along the bottom of the hat. Once the paper plate is dry, glue the bottom of the hat to the top of the paper plate.

Glue a "beard" of cotton balls -- for a more realistic look pull cotton balls apart before gluing -- along the outside edge of the paper plate.

Glue two googly eyes onto the plate near the hat and glue a pink pom-pom under the eyes as a nose.

Cut a cotton ball in half and glue above the eyes as eyebrows.

Cut a cotton ball in half and pull it slightly to form a mustache. Glue under the nose.

Use the red marker to draw a smile under the mustache.

Optional Use craft wire to bend into shape to make glasses.
